Each closing would save the district... Read More

A similar cull will take place in Lower Merion Township in... Read More

started: 10/31/11 5:47 am | updated: 10/31/11 5:47 am
This is the Eagles team most Philadelphia football fans expected to see from the start of the season. On Sunday night the Birds ran a stampede over the top ranked Dallas defense on their way to a 34 to 7 blowout. Just a few weeks ago, many fans were convinced Andy Reid would be run out of town after the team's slow start. Now Andy is getting high praise for his perfect 13-0 record after bye weeks and the fact that the team is looking like it is beginning to gel as a real force in the... Read More

Have you heard the one about the University of Pennsylvania orthopedic surgeon who does fat jokes about overweight patients? True story. Doctor John Kelly writes a humor column and threw some jokes in that got some hot water with Penn and obesity bias advocates.
